But I am sure that these 5 BOOKS won’t survive on my to-be-read list for much time. I can’t wait to have them in my hands and digging into I hope I will find everything that I am expecting from them and EVEN MORE.

(PLOT BY GR) I had no life experience, zero common sense and had never eaten rice. I suffered from debilitating anxiety, was battling an eating disorder and had just had my heart broken. I hoped by leaving to travel the world I would be able to heal myself. Instead, Lauren’s travels were full of bad luck and near-death experiences. Over the space of a year, she was scammed and assaulted, lost teeth and swallowed a cockroach. She fell into leech-infested rice paddies, was caught up in a tsunami, her motorbike’s brakes failed and she experienced a very unhappy ending during a massage in Thailand. It was just when Lauren was about to give up on travel that she stumbled across a handsome New Zealander with a love of challenges…

Resolution of 2018: Finishing book series!

On these 365 days I am planning to catch up on some unfinished business: THE BOOK SERIES! Series are such a cross for me: I started them and I loved them but then I want to go for something different and completely forget about them. When I finally decided to go back to a world setting I suddenly forget about EVERYTHING: the characters, the world and the entire plot of the previously book.

#WrapUp: my September Wrap Up!

19621606_1862250074098752_465844675_nI don’t know what happened to this year but the summer went gone so suddendly. Don’t make me wrong I am good with it: there is so point of being summer if I have to work in the office and I was pretty tired of 35+ degrees on my skin. Especially because I tend to not feel very well on the warm wheather.
So I finally went back on light up candles. I missed those smells so much.

Getting up to my wrap up of this month. I don’t think it wasn’t bad couting that I went back to 8hours+ of work and I had the time to reading only on my trip to work. So here we are..

#Top10Tuesday: 5 Books that feature character with Mental Illness

toptentuesday So it seems like I went back with my Top Ten Tuesday posts. Lets see how much I can be consistent with them or blogging in general.. I accept bets.

So here you are going to have a post with my favorite book about mental health and if you still haven’t read any them this is your chance to pick it up one and START.
